Phil Ashcroft and Scrawl Collective at Tate Modern: No Soul For Sale, Friday 14 - Sunday 16 May 2010
To celebrate Tate Modern’s 10th anniversary, the gallery will host No Soul For Sale – A Festival of Independents. For this free arts festival, Tate Modern is inviting over 70 of the world’s most innovative independent art spaces, not-for-profit organisations and artists’ collectives, from Shanghai to Rio de Janeiro, to take over the Turbine Hall. The festival will fill the iconic Turbine Hall space with an eclectic mix of cutting-edge arts events, performances, music and film on 14-16 May 2010.
Scrawl Collective artists' Phil Ashcroft, Will Barras and Cat Johnston have been invited to participate in No Soul For Sale. Over the course of the weekend, the artists will be taking part in a live-painting collaboration across a six-metre wall on Tate Modern's Turbine Hall Bridge.
Scrawl Collective is an artists, illustrators and designers agency. It’s main purpose is the discovery and promotion of new talent and to continue it’s 10 year commitment to challenging the small ‘c’ conservatism of the British street art scene the collective sprang from, and by doing so, widen the scope and the definition of street art and urban graphics.
